TOWN OF ANDOVER 

MASSACHUSETTS 



Town Offices 
36 Bartlet Street 
Andover, MA 01810 
(508) 623-8200 

To the Honorable Board of Selectmen and Citizens of Andover: 

Looking back to recapture, in few words, the hallmarks of 1995 
is not an easy task. Many important events took place during 1995 
that will impact the Town for years to come. 

At the Annual Town Election the voters elected a new Selectman 
Barry R. Finegold. He replaced Charles H. Wesson, Jr. who was not 
re-elected after serving the Town of Andover for twelve years as a 
Selectman and six years as a Finance Committee member. 

In one of the most emotionally charged scenes ever witnessed 
at an Andover Town Meeting, the voters turned down the Andover 
Youth Council's request to fund a youth center at Rec Park. The 
debate was lengthy and impassioned, but the supporters were not 
able to garner the necessary two-thirds vote needed. 

Also, at the Annual Town Meeting the voters created two new 
committees. The Ballardvale historic District Bylaw was passed 
that established a seven member Ballardvale Historic District 
Commission to promote the educational, cultural, economic and 
general welfare of the public through the preservation and 
protection of distinctive historical buildings and places in 
Ballardvale. The other was the creation of the Commission on 
Disabilities. This is a nine member committee charged with the 
responsibilities of coordinating and carrying out programs designed 
to meet the needs of the Andover citizens with disabilities. The 
sum of $1,500 to provide the first year's operating cost was 
generously donated by the Northeast Rehabilitation Hospital. 

In the summer of 1995, the Enhanced - 911 (E-911) public 
safety emergency telephone system went into effect. 

Elm Green, the new veterans memorial, in Elm Square was 
constructed during the year and dedicated on Veteran's Day 1995. 

Dick Collins, a long-time teacher and coach at Andover High 
School, was awarded the Andover Chamber of Commerce Community 
Service Award. He has coached football and track for many years 
and posted over 500 football and track victories. The Chamber 
cited him because he personifies excellence and endurance. 



The long-awaited railroad train whistle ban took effect in 
August, 1995. 

Thomas Urbelis, Town Counsel, was pleased to inform the Town 
that the State Appeals Court reversed three earlier lower court 
decisions against the Town regarding the old bowling alley at 32-34 
Park Street. This action upheld the Town's decision not to issue 
a building permit for the building due to zoning bylaw violations 
and parking problems with the intended reuse. By year's end a 
development firm was actively planning the property's reuse within 
the Town's zoning and parking regulations. 

In December, 1995, the Andover Fire Department participated in 
firefighting activities at Maiden Mills on the Lawrence-Methuen 
line. The department dispatched a pumper truck and an ambulance to 
assist at the scene of the fire. The Andover Police Department 
also responded with personnel for crowd control. In total, twelve 
of our Andover firefighters and police officers responded to this 
tragic incident. 

The School Building Project was on center stage all year long. 
The South Elementary School addition and renovation project was 
started in December 1994 and it was completed for the opening of 
school on September 12, 1995. The Sanborn Elementary School 
project began with a ground breaking in June, prior to school 
closing for the summer vacation. By the end of 1995 its addition 
and renovation project was 4 5% complete. This project will be 
finished in time for school to open in early September, 1996. 

The Andover High School addition and renovation project began 
with a ground breaking on January 3, 1995. It is the largest of 
the three school building projects. With a total budget of $2 6.5 
M it is one of the largest school building renovation projects in 
the Commonwealth. This project is a complex renovation to an 
existing occupied school building. In the summer of 1995, 
Stone/Congress - A Joint Venture, the contractor, sued the Town and 
Earl R. Flansburg + Associates, the architects, for $1.6 million 
for a number of claims including alleged problems with the 
construction documents. By the end of the year, however, the 
project was 65% complete with the new twenty-six (26) classroom 
science wing, fieldhouse/ gymnasium, and entry/lobby under 
construction with completion dates of late winter/early spring 
1996. During the year, considerable site work was accomplished, in 
particular, the construction of the new driveway and parking lots. 
Renovations to the existing classrooms are scheduled to begin as 
soon as the science wing is available for occupancy. 

In November, the Town went to the bond market to sell $21.6 
million in general obligation bonds for a number of projects 
including water improvements, land acquisition, school building 
project, etc. The bonds were sold with an interest rate of 
5.0966%. Moody's Investors Service continued the Town's Aa bond 
rating and stated that "Andover has strong socioeconomic profile, 
with well above average socioeconomic wealth indicators and 



consistently low unemployment rates. . .well-maintained finances, 
with satisfactory liquidity. . .satisfactory debt position." 

During the year, the Selectmen focused on economic development 
issues. They had presentations from representatives of Raytheon 
Corporation, regarding the industrial competitiveness of 
Massachusetts, and Mass. Electric, concerning the upcoming 
deregulation of the electric utilities, and the impact each will 
have on the Town of Andover. 

In December, the Selectmen voted to reduce the real estate tax 
classification shift by 2.5%. This action slightly reduced the 
real estate tax burden to commercial and industrial taxpayers and 
slightly increased it to residential taxpayers. The residential 
rate went from $16.06 to $16.41 and the commercial and industrial 
rate went down from $24.19 to $23.99. 

For the second year in a row the Government Finance Officers 
Association presented the Town with their "Distinguished Budget 
Presentation Award" for the FY-1996 Town of Andover Budget. 

The 350th Anniversary Committee has been hard at work in 1995 
planning a year's worth of spectacular events to commemorate the 
incorporation of the Town of Andover on May 6, 1646. The committee 
has arranged "an ambitious concentration of unique and exciting 
events ranging from former President George Bush keynoting the 
Anniversary Banquet to the unveiling of an original choral and 
instrumental composition commissioned specifically to recognize 
this 350th celebration during the Fine Arts Festival. And, what a 
celebrated invasion it will be when 3 50 youths fly here from 
Andover, England for three days of spirited soccer challenges." 

During the year, Andover had four active Total Quality Teams. 
The Permits Team was established to improve the building permit 
process. Their mission is to continually improve the permit 
process to achieve a consistent, coordinated, educational and 
accurate system from which all customers will emerge with a smile. 
The second team, The Vaulters, was formed to develop a system for 
the elimination of non-permanent records from the town vault and to 
allow for better utilization and organization of permanent town 
records. They have already held one disposal day and they are 
working on a second. The third team, the Fire Department's Health 
and Safety Team, has been working for eighteen months in the 
process of evaluating, comparing and reviewing the design service 
standards of proposed apparatus and firefighting equipment. They 
were successful in developing the specifications for a new 
ambulance, which was delivered in November 1995, and a new pumper 
truck which will be delivered in the Spring of 1996. The fourth 
team, The Technology Focus Group, has been hard at work at 
developing a computer/technology plan for the town. Their mission 
is to develop a town-wide policy that will promote equal and 
effective sharing of computer resources among town departments in 
a way that provides maximum public service for the community. They 
have developed a technology needs assessment report that is the

Dear Citizens of Andover: 



On the occasion of Andover' s 3 50th Anniversary it is a great 
privilege to serve you as Selectmen. At the end of the 1995 Town 
Meeting, the Board began to struggle with several priorities. 
These were: a youth center, a senior center, the completion of the 
massive school building project, adding to our playing fields and 
recreation facilities, and attending to an aging infrastructure. 

Woven within the fabric of the entire year has been 
frustration with the completion of the Andover High School project. 
While the South School has been completed nicely, and Sanborn is 
also on track, the Board of Selectmen have been concerned with the 
significant delay, complexity, and management of the task of 
completing the high school. 

Obviously, this has had an effect on all other areas of our 
community life. It means that money which would be available for 
completion of recreation fields and projects is limited. In the 
budget for FY-1997 there is a sum for the rehabilitation of the 
Shawsheen fields, long overdue, yet other plans for adding to our 
playing fields have been delayed, principally for financial 
reasons. 

Our senior citizens have experienced similar frustration in 
their effort to locate some buildable land or area within the 
downtown region. They are presently exploring other options. The 
present housing for the senior center is completely inadequate and 
far below their needs. The aging population of Andover will 
eventually demand what should already be under construction, namely 
a facility for seniors. 

We of the Board of Selectmen are very proud of the Youth 
Council and its services provided by the Town of Andover. The 
Selectmen have given their office and conference room to this group 
for their headquarters, and we are delighted to do it. The youth 
are maturing and healing from the disappointment experienced at the 
1995 Town Meeting. Their energy and drive will eventuate again in 
a plan for a long awaited dream for a youth center in Andover. 



Our infrastructure is in far better shape than it was five 
years ago. Roads, water and sewer service, bridges, and buildings 
are in better repair. Financially we are sound, and we have 
increased our cash reserves for a rainy (or snowy) day. 

We are a growing, active, diverse community. We have many 
needs. Some are willing to be taxed heavily to achieve all our 
goals. Others already feel the financial pressure of the taxes 
they pay. In order to be fair to all, there will always be 
something which will not meet the needs of everyone. But as we 
enter our 350th year this is the challenge before us and we have 
attempted to do our best. 



Sincerely, 




Larsen, Ph.D.

ANDOVER 3 50TH CELEBRATION 
CALENDAR OF EVENTS 



Andover will celebrate its 350th Anniversary throughout 
all of 1996 with an ambitious concentration of unique and 
exciting events ranging from former President George Bush 
keynoting the Anniversary Banquet to the unveiling of an 
original choral and instrumental composition commissioned 
specifically to recognize this 350th celebration during 
the Fine Arts Festival. And, what a celebrated invasion 
it will be when 350 youths fly here from Andover, England 
for three days of spirited soccer challenges. 

These events are guaranteed to bring a new dimension to 
Andover ' s sense of community, commitment and history. 

INAUGURAL - January 21 

The 350th Inaugural Celebration will begin at South 
Church where Dr. Calvin Mutti will host an interfaith 
blessing along with the rectors of other Andover 
congregations and churches. At the end of the service 
the South Church bell will ring setting off an all 
Andover bell ringing. Weather permitting, the Medford 
Fife and Drum Corps will lead the South Church gathering 
up School Street to Phillips Academy's Cochran Chapel. 

Phillips Academy's William Thomas will direct seven 
Andover choral and instrumental groups in a two hour 
concert of American song. The musical selections will 
focus on the significant events which helped shape 
Andover in the last 350 years, from the early Puritan 
influence, the American Revolution and Federal period, to 
the Civil War, Victorian, the Jazz Era and finally to our 
"almost native" son, Leonard Bernstein. Narrations 
portraying important figures from our town, Harriett B. 
Stowe and Bessie Goldsmith, among others, will help tell 
the story. Bunting inside the chapel and ushers in 
colonial costumes will help set the atmosphere. 

A Dixieland Jazz group will meet up with the recessional 
concert groups for assembly on Chapel Avenue. The 
Dixieland group will march everyone down Bartlet Street 
to Doherty School for a reception of Pompy Lovejoy's 
Election cake and hot cider. The Jazz Band will continue 
to play and festivities will close with a fireworks 
display.

FINANCE & BUDGET DEPARTMENT 

The mission of the Finance Department is to build and 
reinforce confidence in Town financial management by managing and 
planning all financial functions in an efficient, cost effective 
and responsive manner, and, through a collaboration of team 
efforts, provide departments and the public with the necessary 
information to assure accuracy, accountability and justification. 

FINANCE ADMINISTRATION 

The Town Manager's Recommended Fiscal Year 1996 Budget was 
released on January 20, 1995. During the months of January, 
February and March, approximately twenty meetings were held with 
the Board of Selectmen, Finance Committee and department heads to 
review the budget and warrant article requests and prepare 
recommendations for the Annual Town Meeting. 

On March 31, 1995 the Finance Committee Report was mailed to 
11,060 households. The Annual Town Meeting was held on 
April 10, 1995 and the Fiscal Year 1996 operating budget 
(Article 4) was adopted in the amount of $65,885,333. This budget 
was an increase of 5.8% from the fiscal year 1995 operating budget 

Of $62,280,708. 

The Annual Town Meeting also voted for a number of capital 
projects and authorized the Town to borrow for the following 
projects: 

Rec Park Improvements $213,000 

Field Improvements 384,000 

Fish Brook Pumping Station 375,000 

Water Treatment Plant Improvements 1,000,000 

Road Repair 500,000 

Storm Drains 200,000 

Water Main Construction 1,100,000 

Fire Department Pumper Truck 285,000 

A Special Town Meeting was held on November 20, 1995. The 
Finance Committee report was mailed to 11,110 households. 

The Andover Cable Advisory Committee met monthly to discuss 
matters involving TCI Cablevision of Andover and its services to 
customers. TCI serves approximately 8,43 Andover customers. The 
existing cable license expires in June, 1997. The Cable Advisory 
Committee began its discussions regarding the requirements for 
renewal and held one public hearing to solicit input from 
residents. 

In October, the Town Manager released the FY1997-FY2001 
Capital Improvement Program. This program totaled approximately 
$37 million in projects of which $12.9 million was recommended for 
FY1997. 



11 



The Town borrowed $21.6 million in November for projects 
authorized by previous Town Meetings. Moody's Investors Services 
confirmed Andover's Aa rating and the bonds were competitively sold 
at an interest rate of 5.1%. This $21.6 million provided funds for 
the following purposes: 

School Building Program $18,000,000 

Storm Drains 200,000 

Conservation Land Acquisition 300,000 

Fire Pumper Truck 285,000 

Road Repair 500,000 

Water Main Construction 1,300,000 

Water Pumping Station 525,000 

Water Plant Improvements 500,000 

Three members of the Finance Department served on the local 
Total Quality Steering Committee and staff from all divisions were 
involved in three different TQM projects. A number of staff and 
divisions received special recognition at the first annual 
Merrimack Valley Municipal Government Recognition awards ceremony 
sponsored by the City of Lawrence and the Towns of Andover, 
Methuen, and North Andover. 

ASSESSOR 

The Board of Assessors is responsible for the valuation of all 
real estate and personal property items in the Town. The Board 
hears appeals in these two categories along with motor vehicle 
excise. The Assessors are also responsible for the awarding of 
nearly 350 property tax exemptions on an annual basis. Major 
exemption groups include senior citizens, disabled veterans, widows 
and widowers, and individuals classified as blind. 

The Board of Assessors also conducts revaluations of all 
property on a triennial (every three years) basis. The Board is 
responsible for meeting all Massachusetts Department of Revenue 
guidelines for property valuations, reporting of valuations and tax 
billing. 

The Assessor's Department gathers vast amounts of property and 
ownership related information that is available to the general 
public. More than 1,000 requests for public records and 
information are received and processed on an annual basis. 

CENTRAL PURCHASING 

During 1995 there were approximately 2016 purchase orders 
processed for the Town, 3 067 purchase orders processed for the 
School Department, and 5080 Requests for Payments. Approximately 
100 bid openings were held, plus 13 Requests for Proposals. The 
continued use of State bids and contracts has proved to be 
beneficial to the taxpayers of Andover.

personal needs. The Town is reimbursed for 75% of these 
expenditures by the State according to Chapter 115 of the 
Massachusetts General Laws. 

Eleven veterans were admitted to Veterans Administration 
hospitals. Forty-five veterans died in 1995; one from World War I, 
thirty-four from World War II, eight from the Korean War, and four

TOWN CLERK 

The mission of the Town Clerk's Office is to uphold the 
integrity of the Town's democratic process, to maintain and 
preserve public records, and to act in the best interest of the 
community and the State by providing innovative, efficient, 
quality service. 

As the Town approaches its 350th Anniversary in 1996, we 
cannot help reflecting on the changes that have occurred in the 
Town Clerk's office since the Town's 3 00th Anniversary. The Town 
Clerk of 50 years ago may have been happy to have had one 
typewriter to handle the office record keeping - today, computer 
technology is used to process and manager the Town's records. 

A significant voting change occured in 1995 as the Town 
Clerk's office went on line with the Secretary of State to manage 
the new Voter Registration Information System (VRIS) . The office 
is now directly linked to the State which will be linked to the 
Registry of Motor Vehicles in early 1996. Soon, a resident may 
register to vote in any community in the Commonwealth. The 
registration will be entered into the VRIS computer system, 
downloaded into the Clerk's computer system and a message sent to 
the former community to remove that voter from their records. 

In January, the Town Census was mailed to 11,280 households. 
The population at that time was 31,185.

TOWN COUNSEL 

During 1995, Town Counsel made numerous appearances before 
State Courts and Administrative Boards. Formal legal opinions 
were researched and rendered to Town officials. Court challenges 
to decisions by the Town's boards and commissions were defended 
by Town Counsel. Administrative proceedings and lawsuits were 
commenced to enforce compliance with state statutes and the 
Town's by-laws. 

Town Counsel had conferences with the Town Manager and other 
Town officials on almost a daily basis. Town Counsel reviewed 
all Articles of the Warrant and attended all Town Meetings. 
During the period covered by this report, contracts were drawn 
and reviewed and numerous deeds, easements, releases and 
agreements were drafted and recorded. In particular, a 
noteworthy event in 1995 was the judgement of Massachusetts 
Appeals Court which upheld the Planning Board and Zoning Board of 
Appeals decisions that the Town's parking by-law should be 
applied to the former bowling alley on Park Street.

MEMORIAL HALL LIBRARY 

The mission of the Memorial Hall Library is to make available 
a broad range of library materials, to provide up-to-date and 
accurate information, to offer services and programs desired by the 
community of Andover, to act as the most convenient point of access 
for the needed materials and information and to actively seek to 
make community members and organizations aware of library resources 
and services. 

The year 1995 began with the dedication of the Library's new 
front entrance in honor of Nancy Jacobson who had been director of 
this institution from 1974 to 1993. All of the funds for this 
project were raised by the Board of Library Trustees during the 
"Historic Footprints" campaign. The year ended with the 
implementation of a computer upgrade that has increased the speed 
and capability of the Merrimack Valley Library Consortium's central 
system and positioned the network for increased access to the 
Internet and improved services to our users. Among the other 
achievements of the past year were the following: 

• Opening the library on Saturdays during the summer which 
resulted in a circulation of approximately 1,200 items over 
the eight weekend days. 

• Increasing the levels of services for children and their 
families with concerts, puppet shows, and new collections. In 
addition, services to families who home school their children 
were highlighted in a program given by the Children's 
Librarian, Bridget Bennett. 

• Circulation of compact discs increased by 46,4% to 15,046 and 
circulation of audio cassettes, including talking books, by 
30.5% to 20,138 after these items were displayed in new 
plastic security cases. Collections of compact discs and 
books on tape for Young Adults were started. 

• A staff-created customer service policy was approved by the 
Board of Library Trustees and is being implemented to make the 
library's policies and procedures work for the benefit of the 
library patrons. 

• An information desk was established at the back entrance of 
the library and more assistance to users of the library 
computer catalog is being provided by the library monitors. 

• A 28-page printed annotated bibliography of materials in the 
Andover Room was printed for distribution to teachers, 
students, and others interested in Andover 's history. 

• Public Access to the Internet and to an on-line index of more 
than 2,000 periodicals are now being provided via the MVLC 
system.

POLICE DEPARTMENT 

The mission of the Andover Police Department is to protect our 
future and the quality of life in Andover. We are empowered to 
protect life and property, but, with the changing times of 
increasing social problems, our agency has become more service- 
oriented to the community. To continue our mission, we will 
maintain an open door policy to the community, working with their 
suggestions, needs and thoughts so that we may preserve the way of 
life that we all enjoy in Andover. 

OPERATIONS DIVISION 

The major project for 1995 was the reconstruction of the 
Communication Area in preparation of the E-911 Emergency Phone 
System that went into effect in July. This was a major undertaking 
as it required the complete removal of the Communications Center to 
a mobile trailer outside of the station during the construction 
phase. The construction project was done by the Town's Department 
of Municipal Maintenance who did an excellent job. Planning, 
coordination and implementation of this project was done by the 
Communication and Records Divisions who did an outstanding job in 
handling this transition without any interruption of service to 
the public. 

There were two resignations in the Communication Division and 
Barbara Hood and Charles Edgerly were hired as replacements. 
Safety Officer Robert Cronin returned to work after being out since 
1994 due to a motorcycle accident. 

RECORDS DIVISION 

The Records Division coordinated the installation and 
implementation of the automated 911 emergency system and the 
renovation to the dispatch area to meet the 911 criteria required 
by the State Telecommunications Bureau. The Division installed and 
implemented a computer link between 911 and the computer-aided 
dispatch system to capture caller information automatically and 
dispatch necessary personnel quickly. They also installed color 
terminals in the dispatch area to effectively notify dispatchers of 
existing warnings and permits. The E-911 system went on line on 
July 19, 1995. 

Grants were received from the Governor's Highway Safety Bureau 
in the amount of $5,000 for a LIDAR Speed Detection Device, from 
D.A.R.E. in the amount of $16,000 for program implemention and 
C.O.P.S. FAST in the amount of $75,000 for Community Policing 
Officer to be used over the next three years to supplement 
salaries. 



25 



DETECTIVE DIVISION 

During 1995, members of the Detective Division investigated 
333 reported incidents. The total number of investigations were 
down but serious crimes such as robberies and arson continued. No 
banks were robbed and breaks into dwellings were down with 
continued success in solving many. Of the four reported robberies, 
three have been solved. 

The department attempted to locate latent print evidence at 97 
crime scenes. As a result, latent print matches were connected to 
31 suspects. The department has assisted other police departments 
with recovery of physical evidence or confirming latent print 
matches. The breakdown by types of cases matched with latent 
prints is as follows: 

Breaking and entering 11 

Recovered stolen vehicles 10 

Robberies 7 

Drug case 2 

Warrant suspect identified 1 

During the year, the Detective Division processed a total of 
4 57 booking photographs, 161 handgun permits and 95 firearms 
identification cards. Over 100 local residents were fingerprinted 
on request for adoption, employment or application for citizenship. 
Photographs of 87 crime scenes, accidents, etc. were taken. 

ANIMAL CONTROL 

In 1995, Animal Control saw a decrease in dog complaints and 
loose dogs and an increase in dogs licensed due in part to public 
awareness of the hazards of rabies and enforcement. 

The Animal Control Officer attended several seminars on rabies 
sponsored by the State. He received a Certificate in Trapping and 
Furbearer Management from the Mass. Criminal Justice Training 
Council. He spoke to various groups on animal safety and rabies 
awareness including several local schools, The Andona Society's 
Safety Awareness Program and any interested residents.

EMERGENCY MANAGEMENT DEPARTMENT 

The Federal Emergency Management Agency has new philosophies 
dealing with disasters at the local level and the Director attended 
these seminars to keep abreast of the new changes. The Radio Group 
held its weekly meetings and assisted the Town at many functions 
throughout the year. The Auxiliary Police assisted the regular 
police officers many times throughout the year at several 
activities. These are very dedicated groups of volunteers and the 
Town is fortunate to have their services.

DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS 

The mission of the Department of Public Works is to 
continuously improve our quality of life by providing the finest 
potable water,, state of the art disposal of our wastes (water and 
solids) , and provide safe travel on our road network. 

ENGINEERING 

The Engineering Division provided field surveys, 
construction designs, plans and documents, competitive bids, 
field layouts and/or construction supervision for various 
construction projects such as installing or repairing storm 
drains at eleven (11) locations, a new water main on Abbot 
Street, and site improvements at Abbot Well. Staff members also 
assisted and coordinated with consultants on the planning and/or 
construction of such projects as the Essex Street and Andover 
Street Bridge repairs, Salem Street and Prospect Hill Water Main 
and the additions at Andover High School, Sanborn and South 
elementary schools. State government agencies were consulted on 
engineering matters, principally concerning Chapter 90 road 
construction, and State Highway projects such as the River Road 
Reconstruction, and Harding Street Bridge reconstruction. 

Planning and estimating for the reconstruction/resurfacing 
of ninety (90) Town streets was prepared this year, while 
assistance was given to the Highway Division during the actual 
work performed on sixty (60) of these streets. Preliminary plans 
and estimates were also prepared for the proposed playing field 
construction at five various sites. 

Preliminary and Definitive Subdivision Plans and Site Plans 
were reviewed for the Planning Board; checked for design 
conformance, traffic safety, layout and adequacy of proposed 
roads and utilities. Performance bond amounts were also 
calculated as requested and inspections and tests were performed 
on all new road and utility construction to insure compliance 
with Town standard requirements. Street opening permits for the 
installation and repair of various underground utilities were 
issued through this division and the necessary utility markouts 
and inspections were carried out. 

The Engineering Division updated the Town Assessor's maps 
and printed the necessary copies for other Town Departments. The 
staff also provided and maintained records of various utilities, 
street excavations, residential, commercial and industrial site 
developments, street layouts and road maintenance.

spring and summer, two sweepers are kept busy in continuous 
cleaning of all streets after winter sanding. Both sweepers 
start each morning at 5:00 a.m. The Highway Division assists the 
Engineering Division in its inspection of the conditions of new 
streets before they are accepted as public ways. The Highway 
Division also provides men and equipment for all other divisions 
when needed and is responsible for the maintenance and 
replacement of all Town drainage systems, including catch basins, 
storm drains and Town brooks. The Highway Division, with the

SOLID WASTE 

Andover, a member of the North East Solid Waste Committee 
(NESWC) , has its refuse transported and processed at the Regional 
Waste-to-Energy Plant in North Andover, where the refuse is 
incinerated to generate electricity. The Solid Waste Division 
oversees the mandatory curbside recycling program for 
newspapers/magazines, metal containers and glass, and the 
voluntary drop-off program collecting #1, #2 plastics and 
aluminum materials. The Town also maintains a leaf and grass 
clippings compost site on High Plain Road, near Bald Hill, with 
the compost material being available to Town residents.

WATER 

The Water Division consists of 19 full-time employees and is 
responsible for the meter reading, billing, supply, treatment and 
distribution of drinking water to the community. The major 
components of the water system are the Treatment Facility, six 
distribution storage tanks and Haggetts Pond, Fish Brook and the 
Merrimack River. 

The main objective at the water treatment plant has been to 
meet provisions of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency's 
(E.P.A.) Safe Drinking Water Act and to supply Andover with the 2 
billion gallons of water required each year. For each of the 140 
contaminants regulated, our certified laboratory ensures 
monitoring techniques (over 40,000 tests per year) to determine 
system compliance. In 1995 Andover met all Department of 
Environmental Protection (D.E.P.) and E.P.A. requirements. The 
treatment plant staff maintains the 24 million gallon per day 
facility, Fish Brook Pumping station, Bancroft station, Woodhill 
and Prospect reservoirs operating on an average of ten hours a 
day off peak and twenty four hours a day during high demand 
periods. The treatment facility is on line 365 days each year. 

The Department of Environmental Protection (D.E.P.) 
conducted a Comprehensive Compliance Evaluation in March for the 
purpose of evaluating the operations and maintenance of Andover 's 
facility (please see resulting performance ratings) . In the 
eleven categories, Andover "meets" D.E.P. ratings and in 7 of the 
11, Andover "exceeds" D.E.P. policies.

MUNICIPAL BUILDINGS DIVISION 

The Municipal Buildings Division is responsible for the 
scheduling and renting of school facilities, after-school hours, 
school and town playing fields, Recreation Park, and the Old Town 
Hall function room in the Andover Town House. 

Schools 

Rentals remained constant in 1995 although school construction 
projects resulted in several spaces at three schools being 
unavailable for rent during certain periods in the year. Gymnasium 
rentals comprised the majority of the 5,000 plus rental/uses in 
1995 by school/municipal personnel and groups, scouting 
organization, youth leagues, community performing arts groups and 
private individuals.

Recreation Park is available for private rentals on weekends

softball field and tennis courts are reserved for Department of 
Community Services tennis classes and recreational leagues. Private 
rentals were down from 47 in 1994 to 32 in 1995. The drop was 
primarily due to the fact that the park's ballfield was reserved for 
Little League practice and play each weekend during April, May and 
June to make up for the shortage of school fields which were taken 
off-lilne due to school construction.

PARKS AND GROUNDS DIVISION 

The three Parks and Grounds Divisions (Parks and Grounds, 
Cemetery and Forestry) are independent and interdependent. They 
all operate under the supervision of one superintendent. They 
share certain pieces of equipment and work together on special 
projects. As with any public agency with manpower, special 
equipment, and vehicles in its inventory, the three divisions 
perform many tasks seemingly unrelated to their principal 
horticultural maintenance duties such as delivering surplus 
government food to the Senior Center, litter control, trash 
removal, recycling, flagpole maintenance, fence/gate/backstop 
repairs, drainage connections, ice control, snow removal, and 
moving extraordinarily heavy objects such as the whiskey barrels 
used as planters in the downtown area. 

Parks 

This division maintains 2.75 million square feet of ballfields 
and 1.4 million square feet of lawn areas. Ballfields are located 
on all school grounds and other areas such as Recreation Park, 
Ballardvale Playground, upper Shawsheen, lower Shawsheen, the 
Bowling Green, and the Deyermond Field. Lawn areas are the grounds 
of all Town and School buildings, parks, playgrounds, and 
designated islands, triangles, and other parcels throughout the 
Town. Ballfields are prepared (groomed and lined) for all 
secondary school athletic events. Turf maintenance consists of 
mowing, aerating, watering, overseeding, liming, fertilizing and 
controlling weeds and insects. Pesticide operations are conducted 
by trained and licensed personnel using approved pesticides and 
methods. This division also maintains small trees, shrubs and 
shrub beds on Town property and cuts back brush encroaching upon 
ballfields and recreation areas.

Cemetery 

Spring Grove Cemetery on Abbot Street is owned and operated by 
the Town of Andover. The cemetery contains approximately sixty 
acres and is approximately 75% developed. During 1995, there were 
91 burials and 105 grave sites were sold. $73,370 in fees were 
collected - $48,543 was turned over to the Town Treasurer and 
$24,827 was added to the principal of the Perpetual Care Fund. 
Cemetery operations and maintenance consist of burials, mowing, 
trimming, turf care, pruning of shrubs and small trees, leaf 
pickup, snow removal, care of its own facilities and equipment, and 
out-of -cemetery tasks such as trash in Recreation Park, drainage 
work and construction. 

A three-year comparison of burials, sales, and monies 
collected is as follows: 

1993 1994 1995 

Burials 96 84 91 

Grave Sites Sold 120 93 105 

Total Monies Collected $74,145 $63,825 $73,370 

Forestry 

Forestry is responsible for the maintenance of trees along the 
roadside, on school property, and other Town-owned land. During 
1995, 103 dead and dying large trees were removed. The Forestry 
Division planted 42 shade trees along the roadside. Tree varieties 
planted were: Callery Pear, White Pine, London Planetree and 
Armstrong Red Maple. Approximately 25% of the personnel's time was 
spent on pruning which consists of street-by-street pruning, storm 
repairs, flatclearing areas of undesirable vegetation, and removing 
obstructions at intersections and curves thus providing better 
visibility. The Forestry Division also mowed tall weeds along the 
roadside throughout the Town. 

A three-year comparison of removals and planting is as 
follows:

• held monthly meetings with the Board of Health Directors from 
the five participating towns. 

• recruited and trained 14 to 16 year olds to conduct compliance 
checks in 130 tobacco vendor sites.

Compliance checks are conducted to verify that tobacco retailers 
are abiding by state law that prohibits tobacco sales to minors. Due 
to continual merchant education, compliance check results have 
improved over the duration of the program. The results of these 
checks are as follows:

Goals of the Tobacco Awareness Program are as follows: 

change social norms by motivating and facilitating behavior 
change at the community level. 

increase public awareness of tobacco issues using community 
education activities and the local media. 

provide information to the public concerning tobacco use and 
cessation program services. 

develop and promote policies and regulations restricting tobacco 
use in public places. 

provide training session for local merchants on youth access to 
tobacco products. 

enforce regulations and ordinances that prohibit tobacco sales 
to minors. 

provide technical assistance to worksites on how to become 
tobacco-free . 



PLANNING DIVISION 

The mission of the Planning Division is to ensure the orderly 
growth and development of the Town through sound planning practices 
and through the implementation of the recommendations of the Master 
Plan. 

The year 1995 can be described as one of completion and 
commencement for several major projects. The River Road Corridor 
(east) project which started in 1983 was completed and the Shawsheen 
Square intersection improvements were finished. Also completed was 
a Main Street Corridor Traffic Management Study which, when 
implemented, is intended to improve the traffic flow through the 
downtown. New undertakings such as the Main Street traffic 
improvement project through the Phillips Academy campus gathered 
momentum and the Dascomb Road corridor project between Frontage Road 
and the Tewksbury line was started. The division contributes 
significant amounts of time and effort on such projects. 



51 



The work of the Zoning Bylaw Task Force began in earnest in 
1995. The group, with Planning Division support, conducted six 
meetings during which significant work was accomplished on the 
reorganization of the document. During the year, the Division staff 
began participation in the country-wide geographic information system 
(GIS) network and completed additional computerization of land use 
data such as the zoning map. 

1995 saw the commencement of the first project which encompasses 
all of the goals set forth for the Mixed Use zoning district 
including a major historic preservation project (Marland Place) , 
assisted living with affordable units and Shawsheen River access. 
The Planning Division participated in the Moody's Investors Service 
presentation and tour and also received a Governor's Highway Safety 
Bureau grant for bicycle routes. 

With regard to new development, the year 1995 saw a continuation 
of increasingly complex subdivision proposals, which, for the most 
part, stem from the fact that the remaining vacant land in Andover is 
more marginal and environmentally sensitive. This leads to the 
subsequent demonstrated fact that ever- increasing amounts of time and 
effort are needed to effectively deal with new developmental 
proposals.

ZONING BOARD OF APPEALS 

The Andover Zoning Board of Appeals is authorized to function 
under the General Laws of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, Chapter 
4 0A and 4 OB and the Town By-laws. The Board meets on the first 
Thursday of each month in Memorial Hall Library, Memorial Hall, Elm 
Square. Five regular members and four associate members are 
appointed by the Selectmen and serve without pay. The public 
hearings by the Board are the result of applications in the following 
areas: 

• For a variance from the requirements of the By-laws. 

• For a special permit under the By-laws. 

• By a person aggrieved by the decision of the Building 
Inspector or other administrative officer. 

• For permission to construct low or moderate income housing 
within the Town of Andover (Comprehensive Permit) . 

Prior to hearings, applications are reviewed and pertinent plans 
and sketches requested, legal advertisements are published and 
abutters are notified as required by law. The public hearings are 
conducted by the Chairman in conformity with the Board of Appeals 
Rules and Regulations. Following the hearings, the members of the 
Board, when deemed necessary, view each property in question and hold 
a deliberation meeting thereafter, open to the public, at which time 
the Board discusses the petitions which have been heard. Based on 
their views and the evidence presented at the hearing, a decision is 
rendered, signed and filed with the Town Clerk.

COUNCIL ON AGING 

The mission of the Council on Aging is to ensure 
comprehensive, quality programs and services through outreach, 
education, advocacy and social activities for the senior population 
of the Town of Andover. 

The Andover Council on Aging experienced many changes during 
the course of 1995. Farewells were given to the Director Sharon 
Sousa, Activities Coordinator Judy Kennedy and Administrative 
Assistant Terry Melillo. In August Jeanne Madden was selected as 
the new Director of Elder Services. Pat Becker was chosen as the 
new Activities Coordinator and Judy Stravinskas was hired as the 
new Administrative Assistant. In the interim period, the existing 
staff, under the capable leadership of Acting Director Kathy 
Urquhart, did an excellent job of keeping the Center open and 
thriving. For example: the Volunteer Tax Voucher Program incurred 
a sharp increase in participants from 30 to 100 - volunteers were 
placed in a wide variety of work sites throughout the Town. The 
newsletter welcomed a regular contributing writer from the Day Care 
Program. Requests for social services and participation in 
activities at the Center also increased. In 1995 there was a 
significant increase in the number of people receiving Meals on 
Wheels and this is currently being analyzed. Its impact on the 
ability of the Center to provide services at the current rate of 
change could be quite serious. 

As new staff members settled into the flow of the programs and 
services at the Center, new opportunities for planning and 
management came into focus. Total quality initiatives were adopted 
department-wide. The staff participated in an all-day, off -site, 
transition, mission and goal-setting meeting. The department was 
reorganized and teams were organized to deal with various issues 
such as space and records clean-up, the newsletter and 
transportation . 

Goals of the new Director include: professional development 
for the staff allowing for greater participation in the decision- 
making and problem solving processes; program, service and systems 
evaluation; identification of needs in the community with advocacy 
for solutions to meet those needs; formalization of policies and 
procedures; increased cooperative programming and services 
particularly working with students from the elementary grades to 
the college level and developing clinical placement programs for 
local colleges. 

The members of the Council on Aging also attended a planning 
meeting to review its mission, goals and objectives. 
Team/committee were formed to better organize the work of the 
Council with emphasis on the development of a new Senior Center.

Community Services continues to rate the pulse of the 
community and transfuse their ideas into valued programs. A 
vigorous departmental effort continually improves service to our 
citizens. Healthy enrollment is attributed to a repertoire of 
community-based instructors, streamlined registration including 
Fax, VTSA/Mastercard, overnight mail box and increased 
identification with the DCS "blue book" . 

Youth Services Coordinator William Fahey, hired through the 
Tobacco Cessation Grant, creates a myriad of options for young 
people in Andover. The Andover Youth Council rallied for a Youth 
Center at Recreation Park and were disappointed at Town Meeting 
when the warrant article failed by 64 votes. Aside from the Youth 
Center bid, programs for young people flourished this year. Some 
of the most popular events were the summer trip series, concerts 
and dances at the Town House, the Lacrosse Club and Outward Bound. 
The most popular children's programs continue to be Soccer, 
Baseball Clinic, Tennis and Study Skills. For adults, Ballroom 
Dancing, Rollerblading, Custom Draperies, Tai Chi and Intro to the 
Internet remain on top. 

The Revolving Account continues to create more opportunities 
for residents. Last summer, Coach Maglio's baseball program 
exploded as well as Studio for the Arts, The Club for All at 
Phillips Academy and the all-day Discovery Program. 

Community Services wrote and received grants in 1995. Funding 
was received from the Department of Environmental Management, 
Charlotte Home Foundation and the Abbot Stevens Foundation. Funds 
were also received from the Andona Society, Quota Club of Andover 
and local businesses. 

Two years ago, David Tanklefsky, a first grader, came up with 
the idea of a football program that over 150 children have 
participated in to date. David's idea is just one of the many 
programs that have come to fruition because the residents of 
Andover, in partnership with DCS, make them happen. DCS looks 
forward to continuing to provide citizens with quality social, 
cultural, educational and recreational opportunities.

SCHOOL BUILDING COMMITTEE 
ANDOVER HIGH SCHOOL 

Groundbreaking for the Andover High School addition and 
renovation project took place on January 3, 1995. The contractor 
is Stone/Congress - A Joint Venture. They began work in the winter 
with the excavation of the foundations for the new science wing, 
gym and lobby. During the summer extensive site work and blasting 
took place which led to the construction of a new entry driveway 
and two new parking lots. 

The volume of work performed during 1995 was $14.2 million. 
Of this amount, $1.2 million (8.5%) consists of approved changes. 
Many of these changes were precipitated by the discovery of 
unforeseen conditions during the excavation for the science wing 
and new gym foundations and during the demolition of the Dunn 
Gymnasium locker rooms. 

These additional costs are being closely monitored and 
reported to the School Building Committee (SBC) . An SBC sub- 
committee has prepared a Warrant Article for additional funds 
(which qualifies for 60% reimbursement by the State) . The added 
request is for funds to replace items which had been previously 
eliminated from the program and for additional contingency funds to 
ensure that future unanticipated conditions, common during 
renovation work, can be funded. In the event that the Warrant 
Article does not pass, a list of items to be eliminated from the 
project has been prepared. 

The discovery and subsequent resolution of unforeseen 
conditions has also impacted the project schedule. The opening of 
school on September 12th was delayed three days due to the 
installation of temporary partitions, doors, and emergency 
lighting. Three milestones which were to have been met: the 
completion of the science wing and new gymnasium and the 
renovations to the lockers rooms, are delayed until 1996. 

At the close of 1995, the project was 66% complete. 



SOUTH ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 

In December, 1994 the additions and renovations were begun by 
Grainger Construction Corporation. The additions and renovations 
work on the existing building were successfully completed in time 
for school to begin on September 12, 1995. 

Additions consist of a cafetorium and a gymnasium. New areas 
within the existing school include a media center, music and art 
rooms, four classrooms, teachers work and lunch rooms, and a 
computer center. The existing windows were replaced. Renovations 



62 



were made in the kitchen, existing classrooms, and main office. 
New furniture and equipment contributed to the "brand new" look of 
the school . 

A total of $6.1 million in construction was in place at the 
end of 1995. Of the work in place, there are $182,000 in approved 
changes (3%) . 

The soccer field which was installed during the fall of 1994 
was accepted by the Town and open for limited use by the school. 
It will be available for Town use in the spring of 1996. 
Renovations to the adjacent ballfields will be completed in the 
spring of 1996. 



SANBORN ELEMENTARY SCHOOL 

In May, the Town Manager signed a contract with Mello 
Construction Company totalling $2.9 million was made to Mello 
Construction Company. The Sanborn School goundbreaking was held in 
late June just prior to the summer vacation so all of the children 
and staff could participate. 

Construction began when school closed in late June and 
continued through the summer. Foundations for the new additions 
were placed, new roof top mechanical ventilating units were set, 
and considerable sitework was performed with the construction of 
the bus drop off loop, new concrete sidewalks, and new field. 

Work continued through the school year on the additions and 
with mechanical upgrades. A new boiler was installed and a new 
emergency generator was tested and on line. 

At the close of 1995, the new gym storage room was nearly 
complete and the additions were weather tight. Work in place for 
the year was $1.3 million (45%). 

The soccer field which was installed in the fall of 1994 was 
accepted by the Town but was not used to allow more grow out time. 
It will be open in the spring of 1996.

ANNUAL REPORT 



Andover School Department 



During the course of 1995, the student population of the Andover Public 
Schools grew to 5465 students. These students were distributed across the school 
system with 1308 high school students; 1325 at the middle schools; 2791 in grades K- 
5; and 41 Early Childhood students. These students and the 528 professional staff 
and support personnel are housed in a 9-12 high school, two middle schools of 
grades 6-8, four K-5 elementary schools, and one K-2 Integrated Primary Magnet 
School. The five elected School Committee members who establish the policy of the 
school system meet at least twice monthly. The FY '96 appropriation of $ 26,752,600 
enabled the school department to maintain its basic educational program for the 
students of Andover. Through the continued efforts of a highly professional faculty, the 
students continued to receive a high quality educational experience. 

During the course of the year, a comprehensive facility expansion and 
renovation project got underway. At the South Elementary School, added classroom 
space, a new physical educational facility, and a new cafetorium complex were 
constructed. In addition, the entire existing building was renovated providing "new" 
classrooms, a large media center (reconstructed from the old gymnasium), and art and 
music rooms which were developed from the old cafetorium space. When school 
opened in September, students and staff were welcomed into essentially a new 
school. 

In order to fully utilize the new facility, a redistricting plan for elementary 
students was developed and was implemented in September. 

While the South School was being brought to completion, two other 
construction projects were underway as well. At the Sanborn Elementary School, 
small additions were being developed to provide media center and technology spaces 
along with other expanded facilities. Shortly after the start of 1996 it is anticipated that 
complete renovation of the existing building will begin. By the start of school in 
September of 1996 a "new" school will be ready for the Sanborn School students and 
staff. 



64 



At the High School, a massive addition and renovation project got underway. 
By the end of 1995, a new wing of the school was nearing completion and an 
additional physical education facility was in its final stages of construction. Although 
the project was moving along more slowly than anticipated, the ultimate goal began to 
come into focus. Once the new areas are completed the renovation of existing space 
will begin. At this time, we expect the project to be completed during the first few 
months of 1 997. 

As a result of the need for additional time for the construction projects, the 
opening of school in September, 1995, was delayed three days. 

During the year, the School Committee and Administrators began a study of 
ways to address the space needs at the middle schools. It is anticipated that these 
schools will grow by 300 students over the next several years and additional space 
will be necessary at least by FY '99. This is an area that will deserve great attention 
over the next year as plans are developed to meet the need. 

School Committee and Central Administration 

The Andover School Committee welcomed two new members in March with the 
election of Mrs. Tina Girdwood and Mr. David Bimbach. For Mrs. Girdwood, this 
marked her first election to the School Committee while Mr. Bimbach returned to 
service following a period off the board. 

Following the election and the addition of the new members, the School 
Committee elected Atty. Susan Dalton as Chairperson and Mr. Lloyd Willey as 
Secretary. The Committee then set to work to develop and outline several goals for 
the 1 995-96 school year. The goals articulated by the Committee are: 

1. To provide a diverse, articulated, integrated, curriculum K-12 that is responsive to varying 
student needs at all levels of instruction and which emphasizes intellectual development in the 
areas of basic skill mastery, technology, and growth of fundamental knowledge. 

2. To hire the most qualified personnel and provide them opportunities to maintain their 
professional competence at a high level. 

3. To provide opportunities whereby all students may grow to their fullest potential in an 
atmosphere which is conducive to their social, emotional, and physical development, with each 
student challenged at his or her level of accomplishment and with opportunities for individual 
progress, achievement, and recognition. 

4. To develop a five-year plan for the Andover Public Schools in order that a program for all 
students will be provided which fosters individual growth so that all can become contributing 
members of society. 

5. To initiate steps whereby the school department will work closely with other town boards and 



65 



departments to develop coordinated plans for the Town of Andover. 

5. To provide opportunities for open and honest communication with all constituencies of the 
school department and the town. 

7. To meet all mandates of the Educational Reform Act. 

With these goals as guidelines, the School Committee and Administration: 

* Completed an intensive review of all School Committee Policies. 

* Completed the hiring process for Superintendent and Assistant 

Superintendent of Schools. 

* Worked with other town boards to develop an acceptable organizational plan 

for the maintenance of all town and school facilities. 

T Approved a redistricting plan for the elementary schools of Andover. 
x Conducted open hearings on topics of significant interest to citizens. 

* Successfully completed negotiations for a three-year teachers' contract. 

* Initiated a team to review Andover's status relative to Time & Learning 

requirements and to develop appropriate plans to meet the requirements. 

* Implemented a revised science program K-12. 

* Worked with all responsible parties to facilitate progress of the building 

projects. 

* Undertook an evaluation of the Special Needs Program. 

' Worked with other town boards to review the priorities of the Town, especially 
with respect to the annual budget. 

* Approved a five-year plan for the Andover Public Schools. 

* Participated in workshops relative to Educational Reform Law. 

Notable Milestones 

In the spring, the School Committee appointed Interim Superintendent, Richard 
E. Neal. to the permanent position of Superintendent. Following this, the School 
Committee appointed Ms. Marinel McGrath to the position of Assistant Superintendent 
of Schools. Ms. McGrath previously held the position of Director of Curriculum & 



zz 



Instruction in the Newburyport School System. 

For the start of the 1995-96 school year, three new principals were welcomed to 
the Andover Public Schools. At Andover High School, Mrs. Ellen Parker was named 
as Interim Principal, replacing Mr. Timothy Thomas who resigned during the summer 
to return to teaching at the high school. Mrs. Parker had previously been Assistant 
Principal at AHS. At the West Middle School, Ms. Vicki Simms assumed the 
principalship, replacing Dr. Sam Campbell, who resigned. Ms. Simms had been 
Assistant Principal at the Diamond Middle School in Lexington. Also, at the Bancroft 
Elementary School, Mrs. Norah McCarthy was appointed Principal, replacing Mrs. 
Debra Dunn who resigned to accept a principalship in another community. Mrs. 
McCarthy came to Andover from Lawrence where she had been both a principal and 
central office administrator. In addition, Ms. Elizabeth Greene was named Assistant 
Principal at the West Elementary School, replacing Ms. Denise Littlefield who was 
appointed principal of the new South Lawrence Elementary School. 

As indicated above, the completion of the South Elementary School and the 
successful implementation of the redistricting plan were worthy of note as was the 
continuation of the building projects throughout the system. 

In the area of Technology, several advancements were made. With the mission 
to use technology to augment the school system's goals of providing the best 
education possible; improving student achievement; and preparing all students to 
capitalize on the opportunities they encounter, new technology labs were installed in 
several schools. New labs were placed in Andover High School, West Middle School, 
and Doherty Middle School. Ready for installation at the start of 1996 were labs in 
South Elementary, Bancroft Elementary, and West Elementary Schools. New labs will 
be installed at the other elementary schools during the course of 1996. In addition, 
consultants provided Andover with a staff development plan and a curriculum 
development plan. A Jumpstart project provided computers for use by staff and 
students throughout the school system with the primary goal of allowing staff to 
improve their skills in the area of technology. A mini-grant program provided funding 
for several staff members to explore new instructional techniques and software 
programs for use in classrooms. Throughout the spring, summer, and fall many staff 
members took advantage of professional development opportunities provided by the 
school system to up-grade their knowledge of technology and software programs. A 
Technology Curriculum Council has been established to oversee the infusion of 
technology across the curriculum at all grade levels. The science department at 
Andover High School, anticipating the move into a new science wing of the school, 
worked to redesign their curriculum to take full advantage of the new technologies that 
will be available. A five-year plan including budgetary projections has been 
developed for the area of technology. 



67 



Business Department 

The Business Department was engaged during the year in several special 
projects in addition to, and in support of, its normal financial, facilities and school 
system operations functions. The preparation and oversight of the budget and 
continual monitoring of needs and expenditures remained the central focus of the 
departmental staff, with new School Accountant, Janet Wright, assuming a key role in 
financial services. In addition, much energy was expended on developing a 
redistricting plan and the accompanying transportation system. Carol Znamierowski, 
Transportation Coordinator, deserves much of the credit for the successful 
implementation of this plan. 

Several areas of focus this year deserve special mention: 

* Plans to up-date administrative technology. A hardware and software 
package and networking system has been identified to improve capabilities in this 
area. As a first phase, computers and FAX-capable printers were purchased for 
several schools and administrative offices which lacked up-to-date equipment. 

* New voice/data communications system. A new Centrex telephone system 
was installed in all schools. New telephone numbers for all users provided the most 
obvious change, with features such as call forwarding, voice mail, and computerized 
billing in place. This new service will provide cost savings as compared to the 
previous system. 

* Building project purchasing and liaison. Purchasing of new equipment and 
furnishings for the newly renovated and enlarged South School was handled jointly by 
the Business Office, South School staff, and construction project personnel. 

* School Maintenance. The Business Office, with the assistance of two citizens' 
committees, prepared a report on comparative maintenance costs and services which 
was very useful to the joint boards of the town as the structure of the maintenance 
department was reviewed. 

* Five Year Plan and Middle School Facilities Study. The Business 
Department provided valuable data relative to enrollment and financial projections for 
the five year plan. A preliminary study of the possible use of the second and third 
floors of the Central Administration Building for classroom space was conducted. 

Personnel Department 

The year 1 995 was marked by significant recruitment efforts by the Personnel 
Department. These included the hiring of such key personnel as the Superintendent 
and Assistant Superintendent of Schools, three principals, a school accountant, and a 
new Director of Senior Services. These searches, coupled with the hiring of forty-eight 



68 



new teachers, forty-four new school support staff, and eighteen town employees, made 
for a demanding and busy year. 

The Personnel Department also sponsored a wide variety of staff development 
and training opportunities. Twenty-three administrators and supervisors from the 
School Department, Police, Fire, Town Government, and Library met over six sessions 
to jointly participate in a supervisory and leadership training program. This proved to 
be a very valuable collegial and professional experience for all of the participants. 

Other training programs included workshops on "Dealing with Difficult People", 
sexual harassment training, and supervisory and staff training on the Dept. of 
Transportation's new regulations on drug and alcohol abuse. The Employee 
Assistance Program continues to make counseling available to employees and their 
families, as well as providing training in the areas of stress management and summer 
survival skills for parents. 

Working with the American Red Cross, CPR certification training was provided 
to the school department's entire physical education staff. Training continues in the 
area of universal precautions, as do efforts. to vaccinate "at risk" staff against Hepatitis 
B. 

In the area of labor relations, the staff of the personnel department provided 
support to the negotiation process for the teachers' union, the instructional assistants' 
association and the Town's Independent Employees Association. 

In addition, the personnel office supported the organization of the Town's new 
Commission on Disability, as well as overseeing the completion of an accessibility 
survey on all public buildings. Organizational support was also provided to the Town 
Manager and Finance Director in efforts to encourage the town and school unions in 
the formation of an Insurance Advisory Committee. 

Finally, the personnel office provided on-going organizational support and 
encouragement to town-wide, "total quality" initiatives and played a supporting role in 
important employee recognition activities, most notably, Local Government Day and 
Founders' Day.

ANDOVER HISTORICAL COMMISSION 

The Andover Historical Commission endeavors to fulfill its 
mission to advise the Town concerning the preservation of it 
historic and archeological resources. 

During 1995 the Commission was active in the following areas: 

Demolition Delay Bylaw: The Commission heard requests for 
demolition from three petitioners and held two public hearings: (1) 
Abbot Academy Campus for demolition requests for four buildings and 
(2) 66 Poor Street request to demolish a barn (withdrawn) . 
Phillips Academy presented a comprehensive plan to preserve Draper 
Hall and demolish Abby Hall, Hall House, the Paint (Laundry) Shop 
and Building 108. Requests were approved. The Commission is now 
hearing proposals to preserve the Paint Shop as a child day care 
facility. 43 Bartlet Street sought to demolish a garage. The 
Commission visited the site to discover the building razed. It was 
determined that the owners sought demolition approval from the 
Historical Society. A warrant article for the 1996 Annual Town 
Meeting will seek to eliminate confusion over names by requesting 
the Andover Historical Commission to be changed to the Andover 
Preservation Commission. 6 Punchard Avenue sought to demolish a 
circa 1870 residential structure and replace it with an office 
building by seeking a special permit from the Zoning Board of 
Appeals. The request was denied. 

Local Historic District 

The Ballardvale Local Historic District Study Committee 
completed work on its two-year project to study the feasibility and 
desirability of establishing a local historic district in 
Ballardvale. Under the capable leadership of Tim Barash, the 
Committee submitted a warrant article for the 1995 Annual Town 
Meeting. The Historical Commission and the Study Committee worked 
together to inform the public about the benefits of such a 
district. With the passage of the article, Andover now has its 
first local district commission. 

The Ballardvale District Commission was appointed in December 
of 1995 and is proceeding with the development of design review 
guidelines for the district. Dennis Ingram was appointed as the 
Historical Commission's representative on the Commission. 

Heritage Education 

The Commission continues to promote heritage education by co- 
sponsoring the Annual Andover Historic Preservation Awards and the 
historic building marker program with the Andover Historical 
Society. This year, the Commission successfully nominated the 
South Church for a Massachusetts State Preservation Award. After 
completing a $1.5M fundraising effort, the church preserved its. 
historic steeple and narthex.

Current preservation projects worthy of recognition in the 
community are the Monumental Arch at the West Parish Cemetery which 
received a $40,000 State matching grant to begin work on restoring 
the arch. The First Essex Bank opened in the former Post Office 
building at 71 Main Street. The former depot building at 100 
School Street has been beautifully restored for use as a wholesale 
computer software business. 

350th Anniversary Celebration 

Norma Gammon, Chair of the 350th Celebration, has worked hard 
on plans for the anniversary. She was awarded the Community 
Service Award by the Andover Townsman for her outstanding effort. 
Three other members of the Commission are chairing 350th events: 
Ann Constantine, Chair of the Inaugural Event; Karen Herman, Chair 
of the House and Garden Tour and Stephen Kearn, Chair of the Boston 
Pops Concert. James Batchelder chaired the Publication Committee 
for Andover , A Century of Change , a book written for the 
anniversary. With support from the 3 50th Anniversary Celebration 
Committee, the Commission will be sponsoring the Massachusetts 
Historic Commission State Preservation Awards for 1996 at the Town 
House on May 15, 1996. 

National Historic Register 

71 Main Street was approved by the Massachusetts Historical 
Commission as eligible for NHR status. The Commission will submit 
a nomination for NHR status for "the Red House", a 174 residence 
located at 373 Main Street. MHC has advised us of their approval. 

Design Review 

Commission and Design Advisory Review member Ann Constantine 
worked with Karen Herman, Inspector of Buildings Kaija Gilmore and 
Senior Planner Laura DeGroot on recommendations to reorganize the 
Design Advisory Group to make it more effective. 

Master Plan 

Karen Herman addressed the Planning Board on goals and 
objectives of the Historical Commission relative to preservation 
planning. In addition to continuing programs currently in place, 
the Commission's objectives center on plans to establish other 
local historic districts and application for certified local 
government status. 

New Commission Members 

The Commission welcomes Dennis Ingram and Ray Flynn who were 
newly appointed to the Commission to replace retiring members Frank 
Byrne and John Dugger. We greatly appreciate the commitment and 
service given by Mr. Byrne and Mr. Dugger during their tenures.

SECTION 8. PROCEDURES 

A. Except as this By-law provides in Section 7, no building or

Appropriateness, a Certificate of Non-Applicability, or a 
Certificate of Hardship with respect to such construction or 
alteration. In addition, the demolition of any building or 
structure must comply with the requirements of Article XII, 
Section 3 3 of the General By-laws of the Town of Andover. In the 
event of any conflict with the provisions of Article XII, Section 
33 of the General By-laws, this By-law shall prevail. 

B. Applications for certificates shall be made with the 
Inspector of Buildings. Copies of applications shall be 
forwarded to the Historic District Commission. Applications 
shall be in a form specified by the Commission that adequately 
describe the proposed work. This may include plans and 
elevations, drawn to scale, detailed enough to show the 
architectural design of the structure and its relation to the 
existing building. Plot and site plans should be filed when an 



130 



ADJOURNED ANNUAL TOWN MEETING - APRIL 12. 199S 

application is made for improvements involving applicable 
landscape features such as walls and fences. In the case of 
demolition or removal, the Inspector of Buildings shall forward 
one copy of the demolition permit application to the Commission. 

C. Within fourteen days of the filing of an application for any 
certificate, the Commission shall be required to determine 
whether the application involves any exterior architectural 
features which are within the jurisdiction of this By-law. 

D. If the application requires the Commission's review or at 
the request of the applicant, the Commission shall hold a public 
hearing (a hearing may be waived according to the provisions of 
Chapter 40C of the General Laws as amended) . The Commission 
shall fix a reasonable time for the hearing on any application. 
The Inspector of Buildings shall give public notice of the time, 
place and purposes thereof at least fourteen days before said 
hearing in such manner as may be determined. A copy of said 
notice shall be mailed, postage prepaid, to the applicant, to the 
owners of all adjoining property and other property deemed by the 
Commission to be materially affected thereby as they appear on 
the most recent real estate tax list of the Board of Assessors, 
to the Town Planning Board, and to such other persons as the 
Commission shall deem entitled to notice. 

E. The Commission shall decide upon the determination of any 
application within sixty days of its filing or within such 
further time as the applicant may choose to allow in writing. 

F. A Certificate of Appropriateness shall be issued to the 
applicant if the Commission determines that the proposed 
construction or alteration will be appropriate for or compatible 
with the preservation or protection of the Historic District. In 
the case of a disapproval of an application for a Certificate of 
Appropriateness, the Commission shall place upon its records the 
reason for such a determination and shall forthwith cause a 
notice of its determinations, accompanied by a copy of the 
reasons therefore as set forth in the records of the Commission, 
to be issued to the applicant, and the Commission may make 
recommendations to the applicant with respect to the 
appropriateness of the design. Prior to the issuance of any 
disapproval, the Commission may notify the applicant of its 
proposed action, accompanied by recommendations of changes in the 
applicant's proposal which, if made, would make the application 
acceptable to the Commission. If within fourteen days of the 
receipt of such notice, the applicant files a written 
modification of the application in conformity with the 
recommended changes of the Commission, the Commission shall issue 
a Certificate of Appropriateness to the applicant. 

G. Only upon request will the Commission issue a Certificate of 
Non-Applicability to any applicant whose application does not 
require Commission approval. 

H. If an application is deemed inappropriate, or if application 
is made for a Certificate of Hardship, the Commission may issue a 
Certificate of Hardship, if conditions especially affecting the 
building or structure involved, but not affecting the Historic 
District generally, would make failure to approve an application 
involve a substantial hardship, financial or otherwise, to the 
applicant and approval would not involve substantial detriment to 
the public welfare. A Certificate of Hardship shall also be 
issued in the event the Commission does not make a determination 
of an application within the time specified in Section 8E of this 
By-law. 

I. Each certificate shall be dated and signed, and the 
Commission shall keep a permanent record of its determination and 
of the vote of each member participating therein, and shall file 
a copy of notice of certificates and determinations of

action by the Commission or make such other decree as justice and 
equity may require. The remedy provided by this Section shall be 
exclusive but the parties shall have all rights of appeal and 
exception as in other equity cases.

shall appear to the Court that the Commission acted with gross 
negligence, in bad faith or with malice in the matter from which
